How To Start A Career In AI: How To Build A Career

Wow. Imagine being at the forefront of Apple's tech revolution, where every day was an adventure in innovation. I loved it, but life had other plans. Everything turned upside down, not by choice, but by destiny. So here's my story, friends. It's about getting back up, chasing dreams, and diving headfirst into a fascinating world of AI. My journey kicked off at Apple's vibrant halls, and now I'm stepping into the thrilling, somewhat unknown territory of AI entrepreneurship.
I was part of Apple's family for over a decade, right at the heart of technology that connects with people. But in 2020, I hit a rough patch. Long COVID. It knocked me down with fatigue and brain fog. I found myself struggling to do the simplest things, let alone innovate. Fast forward to 2023. Apple, my home for 12 years, had to let me go. It was a real scare, filled with so much uncertainty.
I kept asking myself, can I ever make a comeback? Will I ever be at the top of my game again? Then guess what? I stumbled upon ChatGPT by OpenAI. It was more than just a tool. It reignited my passion for tech. It became my buddy in simplifying complex thoughts and helping me read, write, and so much more. ChatGPT turned into something special, a beacon of transformation.
